Since 1985, we have advised technology companies in all aspects of patent law and intellectual property matters. We are knowledgeable, insightful, responsive results-driven attorneys.

Our Patent Law Services

We like to work with clients as early in the development process as possible. Our goals in pursuing a patent on behalf of a client are to:

  • Cast the patent as broadly as possible permissible while including claims of varying scope
  • Limit the ability of competitors to design around the patent
  • Provide a clear application which is persuasive to patent examiners, easily understood by the client and helpful to a jury
  • Reduce the need for or possibility of patent litigation

Our firm turns projects around as quickly as possible. We have the experience and knowledge to draft patents which withstand the tests of time and litigation. As the product is commercialized we can continue to provide advice and services in matters involving trademarks, licensing and other intellectual property issues as needed by clients.
